Intense bright red light appeared in chester county french creek area

We were comming back from walmart in morgantown on RT.23 past elverson. Right before the dealership on the left hand side, my girlfriend which was driving seen a streak of light in the sky. All of a sudden it started glowing red, and got brighter and brighter.

This object got so bright im sure it was seen from a 30 mile radius if it was high enough, which i beileve it was. Brighter then any star/plane/flare. It lasted about 15 seconds, and then dimmed..... and got behind some trees, and it looked like it was moving. By the time we past the trees, it was gone. I looked all around and seen other aircraft in the area, so im sure it will be reported.

It was not your normal deep red aircraft light.... it was metallic looking and was intense. I know others have seen this, I hope it is reported other then me.
